Selling a Used Car?
Use Galves to Help You Price It Right!

The most important step in selling your vehicle privately is to price it correctly. Price the car too high based on those "free" Internet retail numbers and you could be in for a long wait. At the same time, you don't want to 'give it away' and price it below its current value. How then do you establish a price that will appeal to a potential buyer yet gives you a greater return than selling it to a dealer or trading it in?

If you are going to assume a "dealer's role" and sell the vehicle yourself, you will want to do the same thing dealers do and start with the Galves trade-in value. Before establishing a final asking price, remember to factor in your various expenses and, of course, a reasonable amount for your own time and effort. Keep in mind that you may have to factor in any lost tax credits (see: How Trading Your Vehicle May Save You Hundreds!) you might have received had you traded the vehicle into a dealer.
You can look at it this way:

            $ XX,XXX (current Galves value)
          +   Your Expenses (advertising, cleaning, etc.)
          +   Lost Tax credit (if applicable)
          +   Cost of your time and effort
Equals: A Fair Asking Price for your vehicle!

If you are not interested in selling your vehicle privately but prefer to sell it directly to a dealer or to a "fast cash" business, you need be sure that you know what the current wholesale market is for your vehicle. You certainly don't want to go to a dealer uninformed and undersell your car.
